ADAA Art Show 2017 at Park Avenue Armory (Review)

The ADAA Art Show is an Armory Week presented by the association of America’s top art dealer’s. Most exhibits are solo or curated shows.

We are focused on Latin which is a small part of this show, but these really are America’s, and New York City’s, top art galleries. If you only have time to attend one art fair, I would go to the ADAA Art Show.

Brazilian Artists

CRG Gallery is showing Brazilian artist Alexandre da Cunha/

CRG Gallery is showing Brazilian mixed-media artist Alexandre da Cunha
Da Cunha works with utilitarian materials in a very Brazilian way and is influenced by the architecture of his homeland. The tapestries on the wall are made from mops in the colors of cement and stone.

Da Cunha often contrasts hard and soft edges as if he is contemplating the contrast between the outward ease and more hidden complexities of living in Brazil.

The sculpture on the table at the left is also made from a mop, but presented in a very sensual manner.

Cuban Artists

Galerie Lelong shows Cuban artist Zilia Sánchez at the ADAA Art Show 2017

Galerie Lelong Booth C9 showing Cuban artist Zilia Sánchez
Galerie Lelong is showing Cuban minimalist Zilia Sánchez Domínguez. She was born in Havana, Cuba in 1926. She has lived and worked in Puerto Rico since 1971. Like her famous peer Carmen Herrera the 91 year-old Sánchez was only discovered late in her career.

In her minimalist style, Sánchez depicts the female form by painting canvas stretched over wooden armatures. She is representing Cuba in the curated section of the 2017 Venice Biennale curated by Christine Macel.

The more you are around a Sánchez piece, the more you get drawn into it. What seems at first to be delightfully simple, becomes in time simply delightful.
